The Semi-Annual Guide to Yuma Parks and Recreation Activities, which covers spring and summer events, is now available online. Program registration for city dwellers will begin on March 22nd, followed by registration for everyone on March 29th.
As with the guide released last fall, this season’s guide will be available in digital format only to allow for updates and changes as needed. Access it here or through the Parks and Recreation section of the city’s website (www.yumaaz.gov).
“Being digital only, we can keep the guide updated as we hope to add more programs later this summer,” said Jason Nau, director of parks and recreation. “We encourage residents to bookmark the online guide and keep checking for the latest updates.”
The city offers activities with public health and safety in mind. Class size is capped to allow for maximum social distancing. Face covers are required for all indoor programs and outdoor activities when participants are in close proximity. The city may announce additional precautionary measures if necessary. Registration for residents of the city will open on Monday, March 22, by phone or in person. General and online registration begins on Monday March 29th.
The online guide contains clickable links that make registration easier by directing users directly to the appropriate online pages and registration forms.
With vaccinations expected to accelerate, the city plans to reopen the pools and offer swimming lessons this year. You can register for swimming lessons by phone at (928) 373-5200 or in person at the town hall, but it is not available for online registration.
The Children’s Festival of the Arts, a popular annual event for more than a quarter of a century, will return as a drive-through event on April 10, 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., after being canceled from its traditional November 2020 date.
In addition, some Tiny Death and Youth programs will return as public health conditions improve.
The cover of the guide features some of the 40+ public art exhibits available for residents across the city to find and enjoy. The guide includes a handy map, which is also on a dedicated page on the Yuma City website.
